Ed Kanoi loves being the host of The Morning KISS and has enjoyed every second of waking up Maui since joining the station in 2015. Ed says our purpose on KISS is Simple, wake Maui up with a smile! Add to that Maui’s Best Mix of Yesterday and Today, fun stories and conversation, coffee, and fun contests like the Impossible Question, and you have one of the most popular radio shows on Maui. When Ed isn’t hosting The Morning Kiss, he’s busy raising his two teenage boys Elijah and Ezekiel.
